Now that it is slowly getting colder again and getting dark earlier, the sauna and wellness temples are filling up again everywhere. Things are quieter in these five places, where you can sometimes enjoy a sauna in your very own private sauna. We have put together five places for sauna enthusiasts, where you can sweat wonderfully well and where you can experience pure relaxation and deceleration.
1 Bühelwirt, South Tyrol, Italy
In the "Bühelwirt“As a guest, you can look forward to a spacious wellness area with a 12 square meter panorama sauna. From here you can enjoy a unique view of a gentle hilly landscape, which is surrounded by energizing mountains. This view is also impressive from the large relaxation room. The relaxation program is rounded off with a soothing massage. How nice that a wellness bag with sauna towels, slippers and bathrobe is included for guests.
Half board is included in the room prices
Half-board is also included in the room prices. And so you start the day with a good morning breakfast with homemade products and choose from three menu suggestions in the evening, whereby one of the menus is always vegetarian and can also be prepared vegan if desired. In addition, a small hiking snack is provided for excursions and mountain tours, which ensures that you do not get hungry on the way.
By the way, there is something for business here in the Ahrntal in every season. And so in summer guided hikes as well as climbing and bike tours are offered and in winter, in addition to nearby ski areas, there are also offers such as snowshoe hikes, ice climbing, cross-country skiing and toboggan runs. And if all of this is nothing for you, you can simply spend the day here in a relaxed and wonderful way in the wellness area and just do nothing.

2 Ramenai, Upper Austria, Austria
If you are looking for unexcited simplicity and want to spend a few days in the forest, you should go to the hut village of the "Ramenai" drive. Located in the middle of the gentle hills of the Bohemian Forest near the Czech border, you can spend a few relaxing days in the nicely furnished huts. The huts offer space for up to eight people, some with a private sauna.
After a hike, relax in your own sauna with a panoramic view
The region around the Bohemian Forest invites travelers to vacation all year round and winter sports enthusiasts as well as cycling and hiking enthusiasts will not be disappointed here. After an active day in nature with lots of fresh air, you can finally relax in your own sauna with its large panorama window, which reveals a wonderful view of the forest.
The huts are generally geared towards self-catering, but a welcome package is available in the black-washed kitchens of the huts. Filled with all kinds of delicacies from the region, the package contains everything you need for a first hut breakfast. For the other meals, numerous restaurants in the area invite you to stop or alternatively you can get supplies in one of the supermarkets, which can be reached in a good five minutes by car from the huts.

3 Forsthofalm, Salzburger Land, Austria
There is pure alpine wellness on the "Forsthofalm“To experience in Austria. There is always a pleasant smell of wood and herbs in the air throughout the hotel. This is mainly due to the hotel itself, because both the exterior facade and the furniture are made of wood and were built completely free of glue and metal. A real wooden hotel. This natural construction ensures that the building blends in perfectly with the fantastic mountain landscape and the alpine pasture, which is around 1.100 meters above sea level. The large windows in the house ensure that you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the mountain panorama.
To get to the sauna area, simply follow the pleasant herbal scent
If you follow the pleasant herbal scent, you end up in the modern, large spa area including sauna area. After the sauna, the relaxation room with comfortable hammocks and deck chairs or the heated outdoor pool invite you to relax. In the meantime, those who prefer to relax actively can do so in the well-equipped fitness room. There is also a large range of courses and an active program, consisting of yoga and fitness courses. And those who prefer to go outside can make the ski slope, which practically leads directly past the Forsthofalm, unsafe.
In the evening all those looking for relaxation meet in the gourmet restaurant Kukka, whose specialty is steaks from the charcoal grill. But vegans are also completely spoiled here. The cook, who is specially employed for the meat-free kitchen, takes care of that.

5 Forstgut, Bavaria, Germany
The "Forest property“Is a chalet village made of light wooden houses that can be reached in a few hours from cities like Munich or Nuremberg. Here guests will find an ideal retreat from the big city in the midst of nature. If you want, you can enjoy a massage in your own chalet in front of the fireplace or on the covered terrace immediately after arrival. Afterwards, a visit to your own private sauna or a bath in the heated hot tub whirlpool is worthwhile. After that, there is not much left but to enjoy the unspoilt nature around it - either on a hike or snuggled up in the chalets, whose large windows also offer wide views of the natural landscape.
In the morning, a full breakfast basket is ready, which is delivered to the house. This includes, for example, homemade jams, honey from the beekeeper and cheese from the local dairy, as well as rolls from the Regen bakery and sausage from the local butcher and other delicacies.
Fondue, a quick pasta dish or an exclusive private chef - what should it be today?
The rest of the meals can be prepared by yourself in the large, well-equipped kitchens. Optionally and on request, freshly prepared dishes to warm up or ingredients for a quick pasta dish can be delivered to the chalet. Even ingredients for a delicious fondue can be prepared on request. If you don't feel like doing it yourself, you can easily order a private chef to cook for you. So here really nothing to be desired.
